Happy Birthday, CJ!

Today my baby turns 5. It is hard to believe that it has been that long since he was born. He has grown and changed so much in these 5 years. 

He is such a smart little boy; sometimes he seems too smart for his own good. He loves anything that deals with military and zombies. He loves to play on the PS4 as well as his chromebook. His favorite show is Adventure Time. He loves all things New Orleans and misses his "home". He loves "Mommy food" (aka home cooked meals) and pretends to cook for me too. He loves to do his schoolwork; probably because it's all fun and games at this age. He likes to motivate me when I work out and tries to do every exercise I do. But, after one of each he announces, "I'm done." with that adorable little smile. His wardrobe is 95% camouflage.

He announces "Mommy, I love you to the moon and back!" with an enthusiasm that warms my heart. He is a true little momma's boy. 

Last night, we got a small snowstorm. His sisters teased him, telling him that the snow was his birthday present. He immediately said, "Can I have a new present? I didn't want snow."

Over the years he has changed a lot. But one thing has always been the same: He is my little boy and always will be.
